Silence in Westwood

Those who live in Cincinnati's Westwood neighborhood, home to Our Lady of Lourdes, my parish of residence, might have noticed a silence over the last few weeks, as the bells have been pulled down by Vernon Bell Company to be retuned and cleaned and the tower refurbished. Here is a pic of the bells on display.

The bell in the middle is the oldest of the three, at nearly 100 years, and originally hung in St. Pius Church in Cincinnati's Cumminsville neighborhood before moving to Westwood.

After cleaning and retrofitting the tower, the bells will be Christened and re-installed.

Your thoughts are just great. I teach 6th grade ccd - 21 boys and 5 girls and I may read this to them. I had our parish priest come in last week to speak to them about vocations and this would be a great follow up. Thanks!
